Wachovia Regional Foundation (New Jersey, Delaware, eastern Pennsylvania) has taken an approach to evaluation that is focused on measuring progress toward clear goals on an ongoing basis and refining its approach accordingly. For the Wachovia Regional Foundation, being able to assess how grantees are progressing toward quantifiable goals as well as how the foundation is progressing toward its own long-term goals allows the foundation to have a deeper understanding of how it can improve its work and ultimately determine whether lives are improving in the communities in which it works.
